You may have seen a particular cosmetic dentistry procedure on an infomercial lately. Rest easy, you’re not just seeing things. Dental Implants have quickly become as popular a procedure as any in dentistry. As a part on an on-going series and theme, we’re going to feature a series of posts focused on the top dental trends of 2017. We’ll kick things off with Dental Implants and just how far their popularity is expected to grow. This restorative procedure has certainly come along way since it’s early foundation of lead and gold in the early 1900’s.
As our Dental Implants overview portrays, this restorative dentistry procedure can be expected to last many years and the dental technology and techniques surrounding the re-creation of teeth continues to improve. Also as mentioned, it’s important to remember that the procedure will take a few months in typical cases. While conventional (3.0 mm or greater) implants have historically been the “defacto” option in dentistry, the demand for mini, or (3.0 mm or less) implants has increased exponentially. The demand for mini implants in dentistry is projected to grow by over 35% throughout the next few years.
Mini implants allow for us to provide an increasingly non-invasive procedure, life-long lasting secure care, high success rate and faster recover times. The popularity of single-stage surgery’s further assists mini-implants positioning in the dental market. For replacing individual teeth, dental implants are the way to go and bridges are commonly being deferred to as a secondary option for restorative dental care.
